49ers signed TE Justin Peelle, formerly of the Falcons.

A 10-year veteran, Peelle was released with an injury settlement by the Falcons last month. A pure blocker at this stage in his career, he won't be in line for any catches behind Vernon Davis and Delanie Walker.

Falcons released TE Justin Peelle with an injury settlement.

He goes to make room for Reggie Kelly. Peelle's injury was never disclosed, but the quick settlement indicates it's not serious. 32 years old, Peelle can still be a helpful blocking tight end. He should find work in-season.

Falcons TE Justin Peelle (sports hernia surgery) returned to practice Monday.

The blocking specialist was limited, and it remains to be seen if he'll be healthy enough for Week 11. "We will see how he handles the work load and see if he makes it through the next couple of days," coach Mike Smith said.

Falcons TE Justin Peelle is out 4-6 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a sports hernia.

The ailment landed Peelle on the Week 6 injury report as "questionable," but it was just now diagnosed as a sports hernia. Peelle ultimately did not play last week. The 31-year-old is strictly a blocking specialist at tight end.

Falcons TE Justin Peelle (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Peelle lines up with along with Tony Gonzalez in two-tight end sets. He has nine catches for 77 yards on the season.

Falcons TE Justin Peelle suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Eagles and did not return.

Sun, Dec 6, 2009 08:58:00 PM

Falcons re-signed TE Justin Peelle.

Peelle was the Falcons' best receiving tight end last season with a 15-159-2 line, so it's an area in dire need of an upgrade this offseason.
Thu, Feb 26, 2009 08:58:00 PM

Falcons TE Justin Peelle had three receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 13 defeat of the Chargers.

The Chargers are the worst team in the NFL at covering the tight end and had another hiccup this week against Peelle, who entered the game with just 99 receiving yards on the season. The Falcons clearly did their homework, but Peelle is likely headed back to the world of fantasy anonymity.
Sun, Nov 30, 2008 08:12:00 PM

Justin Peelle gained 15 yards on two receptions -- one for a touchdown -- against the Packers in Week 5.

Peelle, who had only two catches in the season's first four games, is a solid receiver and could be productive if the Falcons were to incorporate him into their game plan more. There isn't much to indicate that we can expect that to happen, though.
Sun, Oct 5, 2008 04:43:00 PM

Falcons signed TE Justin Peelle and LB Tony Gilbert.

Peelle has good hands and a chance at a big role in Atlanta, with only Martrez Milner in his way to be the team's No. 1 pass catching tight end. Gilbert, a special teamer, knows coach Mike Smith from their Jaguar days.
Mon, Sep 1, 2008 12:17:00 PM

Dolphins released TE Justin Peelle, OLB Junior Glymph, CB Will Billingsley, LB Titus Brown, C Mike Byrne, WR Jayson Foster, LB Maurice Fountain, NT Anthony Toribio, and LB Edmond Miles.

Sat, Aug 30, 2008 08:03:00 PM

Justin Peelle caught two passes for 27 yards in a Week 11 loss.

Peelle played a larger role with David Martin (leg) out of the game in the second half. The ex-Charger now has 19 catches and two TDs on the year.
Sun, Nov 18, 2007 04:25:00 PM

Justin Peelle caught six passes for 42 yards in Week 8.

Filling in for David Martin, Peelle led the Dolphins in receptions as the Giants defense continues to give up production to the tight end spot. With Martin likely to return following the bye week, Peelle has no fantasy value.
Sun, Oct 28, 2007 05:09:00 PM

Justin Peelle caught four passes for 42 yards in Week 7.

All of Peelle's catches came in garbage time, and he is not a fantasy option.
